I have added FILE_SIZE as a new type in class Field. I migrated file
size fileds in cache section to that new type. But field "size" in
external, rewrite and keyword can be set to -1, which is a signed
integer. My idea is to make this field optional and if it is not
activated, the size limit would be the max buffer size. I have already
implemented optional fields in limits section.

Having -1 as a reserved value is also proving to be a pain in the ass with all the signed->unsigned conversions I'm doing, I think most of it should be working now though for large

When do you think we should do the next release? There's been a _huge_ number of changes since 1.9.1, including a few pretty serious bugs that some people have complained about,
so I'd like to get it out as soon as possible.. then we can benefit from many people testing it.
Things seem to be pretty stable for me, I've been running some stress tests with siege and haven't had any problems.
One thing I was concerned about was memory leaks, but after running a stress test for about 8 hours (left it on while I slept) memory usage topped off at 80mb
(I'm not sure why the hell it's growing that big, but it didn't get any bigger). Maybe we should put part of your malloc debugging code back in, the part that
frees up the memory when a SIGHUP is received.. then we can use valgrind to see if any leaks exist.
